Michael Conti is entering his fifth season in the NASCAR PEAK Antifreeze Series. As a rookie in 2012, Conti became the youngest driver in series history to win a pole (Las Vegas) and win a race (New Hampshire). Consistent results catapulted Conti to a second place finish in the year end standings to two-time champion, Ray Alfalla.
In 2013, Conti scored two wins (Phoenix and New Hampshire) and captured one pole (New Hampshire). After an up-and-down season, Conti edged out JScho Motorsports teammate, Brian Schoenburg, for the fourth place position in the final points standings.
2014 was a make-or-break season for Conti, who at the onset of the season, declared that he’d only run a part-time schedule. The series’ fourth race at the Texas Motor Speedway was a pivotal race, as a strong showing (2nd), pushed Conti to continue forward with his season. Immediately following Texas was Pocono, where Conti, along with all of his Drill Aisle teammates, were the class of the field. The Drill Aisle recorded a one-two finish with Conti beating Brad Davies for the win. The next week at Dover, Conti doubled down, also winning that race. From that point on, Conti set the world on fire, scoring a series-high three wins, four poles, and ten top-five finishes. That along with 601 laps lead propelled Conti to his first NASCAR PEAK Antifreeze Series championship.
Now, after a very disappointing 2015 season, Conti looks to turn his fortune around and compete for another NPAS title!
